When people eat fusion cuisine, their tongues taste multiple flavors at once, much like when they chew buttered popcorn or lick a lollipop covered in buttered popcorn. Combine tastes with today's Groupon: for $10 you get $20 worth of Korean-American fusion cuisine at Sia Fusion Eatery in Newark.
Sia Fusion Eatery's chefs dole out a hearty menu of Korean and American classics, served separately or fused together for artful sandwiches. Dive into a large serving of Korean-style fried chicken, which includes six drumsticks, 12 wings, and a choice of regular, soy-garlic, or spicy sauce for bites to dunk in and practice their cannonballs ($13.99). The tender, marinated beef of a bulgogi cheesesteak sandwich ($6.49) draws inspiration from Philadelphia and Seoul, and the classic third-pound bacon cheeseburger ($6.49) hearkens back to America's golden years. Plates piled with rice and veggies afford diners choices of spicy pork ($7.99) or chicken katsu ($7.99), which pair well with a shared milk shake ($2.99) or a diatribe about the no-good greasers.
